Situated on a horse-shoe shaped cove, Supetar fascinates with its tame simplicity. Everything here is close at hand and made to measure: restaurants, shops, banks, post offices, market, cinema, library, health care services, various sports facilities... Your stay here will be made even more interesting by the free concerts, theatrical shows, folklore festivals and numerous other events which are organized as part of the Supetar Summer of Culture.
Being very well-connected with Split through a direct ferry line (more than 14 trips daily during summer), Supetar is an ideal destination for all those who are looking to benefit from the rich monumental heritage and natural beauties of Central Dalmatia mainland (Diocletian's Palace, Trogir, Salona, Klis, Vranjaca Cave, Cetina Canyon, Krka Falls, Šibenik Cathedral...), enjoying at the same time the charms of a small island town. Let's not forget to mention the numerous opportunities for walks and excursions on the island: Blaca desert, Vidova Gora, Zlatni Rat, Museum of Brac in Škrip, stonemasonry school in Pucišca... Every place on the island of Brac has its own beauty and appeal!
In addition to the high-quality hotels in Supetar, many of the local households offer private accommodation facilities in the form of apartment rentals. You can find more information on our web site www.adria-island.org. The Tourist Office in Supetar is at your disposal all year round.
Town festival: June 29th, St. Peter and Paul
Located in a deep and relatively steep cove, Splitska reminds of a swan gazing into its own reflection in the water. This place of exceptional beauty exudes an almost aristocratic serenity, which is evidenced by the Cerinic family mansion built in the 16th century. Splitska is the ideal destination for those fond of walks in the nature: a 45 minute walk (3 km uphill) to Škrip, 30 minute walk to Postira, and 30 minutes more to Dol.
The town features three restaurants, a cafe and a store, as well as a Tourist Office open during the season.
Town festival: August 15th, Feast of the Assumption
A little place located about 3 km from Supetar towards Sutivan, appeals with its simplicity and serenity. Life has descended from the old town centre, which exudes the atmosphere of a forgotten island village where time had stopped, to new houses, amongst the pine trees and gardens, as close to the sea as possible. The Gumonca Cove with its beach and small port for fishing boats has thus become the centre of new life.
Town festival: July 2nd, Lady of Mirca
Being the oldest settlement on the island, Škrip is one of the must-see destinations for every visitor to Brac. The Museum of Brac is located in the old Radojkovic house; the nearby church of the Holy Ghost, the Cerinic family mansion and the parochial church of St. Helen stand witness to the time when life, endangered by pirates, went on deeper in the island and away from the coast and when Škrip was one of the most important places on the island. The few residents mainly live of agriculture, although this living museum has lately been seeing more and more tourists.
Town festival: August 18th St. Helen
